“To Me It Means I Belong”

WWE Star Mustafa Ali posted a video on his personal Twitter account addressing the recent losing streak he’s had at WWE and why it’s important to get back on track.

The former RETRIBUTION leader later explains why the US Championship means so much to him, adding that winning the gold would make him feel like he really belongs to a country that has supplanted him so many times. Highlights are below.

He hopes fans won’t give up on him:

It’s very easy for me to go into battle when you’re looking behind you and there’s an army after you. But lately, when I look back, I don’t see many people following me. I understand why a lot of people gave up on me. Week after week, loss after loss, blow after blow, I get it. But all I can say is that I hope you don’t give up on me.

Why winning the US Championship is so important to him:

I hope you don’t give up on my hunt for the US Championship and here’s why. Why do I keep getting up? Why do I keep fighting after beatdown after beatdown? The reason for this is because I want to take you back to high school. On September 11, the tragic events happened, and the teachers thought it would be best to let the students speak and express their feelings and feelings. I remember raising my hand and saying, ‘I can’t believe this happened to us.’ The boy in front of me turns around and says, “We? What are you talking about? Your people did that.” I looked around the class and I looked at the teacher and I hoped someone would say something to help me or to defend me. Nobody said anything. Even though I was born in this country, even though I’m American, even though I was an ex-cop, a guy who actually wanted to protect people, who was willing to risk his life, I’m not American enough. So the US championship means more TV time, more money. It means a lot of things to a lot of people, but to me it means I belong and that’s all I’ve been looking for my whole life. I don’t know how I’m going to be US Champion, I don’t know when I’m going to be US Champion, but I know why I want to be US Champion. Now you do too.
